How to Deduct 10% to 20% of Your Building’s Cost Against Your Taxes

One of least-known tax breaks for commercial real estate owners is the ability to write off the cost of a building faster than the usual 39 straight line depreciation schedule (or 27.5 years for residential property).

You can change the way you are depreciating your property to the way the IRS says is the correct way, not the way your accountant said to do it.

Watch this short video on cost segregation, accelerated depreciation and how to write of 10% to 20% of your building’s cost on your income taxes, above and beyond your current straight-line depreciation expense. This can save you big at tax time.
